You need to remove the reduntant lines from the BOOT.INI file which you can access like this:
1. Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
2. On the Advanced tab, click Settings under Startup and Recovery.
3. Under System Startup, click Edit.

In BOOT.INI you should see a sub-heading 'Operating Systems' and under this will be three separate lines each one representing the startup choices you see when you boot up. Delete the two you no longer wish to appear, leaving only the one line referring to your current XP installation. Save the changes.
